Meet Mr. TrueLove

we invite you to check out the TrueLove Experience

Mr. TrueLove, also known as Eugene B. McCorkle, III, was born in Winston-Salem, NC. Although he grew up in a loving home, supported by his mother and three sisters, he faced many oppositions and challenges in his life.

He discovered a passion for words at a young age, drawing inspiration from artists such as Edgar Allen Poe, and later Paul Laurence Dunbar. His life was also greatly impacted by his love of music, and he began singing in his church choir at age nine. The shyness he experienced in school steered him toward his passion for poetry, his first love, and he used his flair for words to catch the attention of his early love interests.

After graduating from high school, he served in the U.S. Army and was stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas. While deployed in the Persian Gulf, he found himself on stage performing for the troops in his company, F Co. 227th Aviation, rapping, acting, and singing. He also wrote poetry for friends and fellow soldiers in his unit who needed that extra romantic flair to place in their letters home to their girls.

After being honorably discharged from service following the war, he continued to write poetry and songs and recorded one major demo. He published his first book, The Love Life: The Intimate Journal of Mr. Truelove in May 2014.

Eugene’s varying roles as husband, father, uncle, and friend have resulted in who he is today. In 2016 his ultimate TrueLove Experience was realized through marriage. In that role and all others, he attempts daily to exemplify the values reflected in Mr. TrueLove.
